Freeport LNG Train 3 Begins Commercial Operation
SAN ANTONIO, May 4, 2020 – Zachry Group, along with its partners, Chiyoda International Corporation and McDermott International, Inc., today announced the beginning of commercial operation of Train 3 of the Freeport LNG project, owned by Freeport LNG Development, L.P.
“We are proud of all the thousands of Zachry employees who worked at the highest level of our safety and quality standards to bring this milestone project in our company’s history to full commercial operation," said Zachry’s Construction Group President Ralph Biediger.
Zachry Group, as the joint venture lead, partnered with McDermott for the Pre-FEED in 2011, followed by FEED works to support the early development stage of the project as a one-stop-shop solution provider for Trains 1 and 2. Chiyoda later joined the joint venture partnership for work related to Train 3. The project scope includes three pre-treatment trains, a liquefaction facility with three trains, a second loading berth and a 165,000 m3 full containment LNG storage tank.
The Freeport LNG facility incorporates the largest electric motor-driven refrigeration compressors in the world and, now, with full commercial operation, will significantly improve North America’s energy export capabilities.
